VAT and indirect taxes
Leading you away from problems and towards opportunities.
How we add value
- Simplify the complicated
We regularly deal with finance and non-finance staff, so are used to translating complex VAT regulations into plain English. Clients and event delegates often comment on this.
- Higher VAT refunds
Our team has over 150 years of VAT experience; we often secure additional VAT benefits for clients not found by their previous advisors.
- Intimate knowledge of HMRC
Not only because all our team members are previous HMRC employees, but because we liaise daily with the organisations that deal with your indirect tax responsibilities.
- Prompt guidance on developing statutory rules and compliance
We place great importance on keeping ourselves and you fully abreast of statutory VAT changes and HMRC VAT policy. We proactively identify and communicate new opportunities both to save you VAT and avoid penalties.
- Validated sector knowledge
In-depth knowledge of the application of VAT to your industry allows us to deal promptly with your enquiries and to ensure your VAT position is maximised.
We are regularly asked to present for regulators such as Charity Finance Group, ICAEW, ISBA, and Charity Tax Group. We also host VAT Practitioner Group meetings, are part of a technical VAT Committee, and chair the Trade Unions Finance Officers Committee.
